34 Year Old Disabled Female Seeks Government Housing Grant For Own Home
(Federal Way, Washington, USA)
I am a 34-year-old disabled female with a 13-year-old daughter that I have during the summers and a 3-year-old daughter.
I have been married for seven years but we are barely making it. I cannot work, having been disabled since I was 20.
I only get $430 a month and all of it goes to pay for our car payment, which leaves me $40 left.
We had to file for bankruptcy last year because of debt. Now we are trying to get our life and credit straightened out so that maybe in a couple of years we can buy a home.
It's hard though because we can't keep throwing away $900 a month on rent and we would like help in getting the down payment so that we can buy a house of our own.
There is no way that we can afford to save up the $5000 or more they want as a down payment and we need help with that.
My husband and I have been fighting lately too because of money and are actually taking counseling to help but I am afraid it might not work.
If it doesn't I am homeless and disabled. So I am hoping someone can help us get into a house. Section 8 takes years.
My husband is wonderful. We do love each other and want us to work out but there is always that chance.
With my medical condition it is dangerous. I have a clotting disorder and I need blood thinners to take every day and if I don't take them I throw clots to legs, lungs anywhere really.
I need to have weekly blood draws and need medical as well and I have that through my husband's work but we just really need help with the down payment on a house.
I am hoping that since I am disabled we can get approved somewhere. Can anyone help? Thanks. T in Washington State.
